I find that the AI won't even try to raise armies to stop raiders if the raiding force exceeds their manpower - simple enough. But there are also times where the defender will raise and then immediately disband the army. This behavior appears to change depending on which holding is raided. Sometimes it takes raiding a directly held holding, sometimes a vassal, sometimes a subvassal. Furthermore, sometimes the vassal will raise to defend, while sometimes the liege will.

What exactly are the rules governing AI rulers raising and moving armies to defend against raiders?
